It may be music to your ears, but to others like your Mom and Dad, roommates and neighbors, drums just make noise and lots of it. Plus, a full set of standard drums takes up a lot of room. So what’s a noise- and space-challenged drummer to do? Consider a set of electronic drums.
Not only can you control the sound level of electronic drums, you can also plug in a pair of headphones and play away without raising the ire of those around you. Electronic drums are also more compact, so they work better in smaller or more confined areas. And, for drummers who like to experiment with their sound, electronic drums open up new musical possibilities by offering you a wider range of sounds than you can get with the more limiting acoustical drums. Electronic drums also allow you to mix in a variety of percussion and cymbal sounds for even greater creative control.
